Juniper will dramatically reduce retention of urine, which often occurs in men when the prostate is enlarged. It is obviously important to ensure that treatment for the prostate condition is undertaken (by a licensed physician). Larger amounts of Juniper oil can actually cause retention of urine (always dilute); (Davis, 171).
It is a very good astringent, and is used (sometimes combined with frankincense) in the external treatment of hemorrhoids (piles) either in the bath or as a local wash (Davis, 171).
Poor elimination is one of the root causes of rheumatism, gout and arthritis, and Juniper should be considered as a means of improving elimination.It is a very helpful treatment for cellulitis, because here accumulated toxins are associated with fluid retention, so the detoxifying and diuretic actions of Juniper work hand in hand (Davis, 172).
Liver problems, obesity, rheumatism, acne, coughs, ulcers, urinary infections; as a diuretic (Worwood, 401).

Generally regarded as safe (GRAS) by the FDA.
Internal: Although the quality of Selah Oils is excellent, it is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a certified physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. We recommend getting internal dosing instructions from a licensed physician as some essential oils are not recommended for oral consumption. This is in no way a reflection on our oil quality, only a matter of safety and caution with respect to how concentrated essential oils are. When used within safe parameters, and under your physician's care, the quality of our essential oils is such that they can be used internally if deemed appropriate.
However, with that said, it is important to remember the extreme concentration of essential oils. "Using essential oils by rubbing them into the skin or via inhalation is in many cases more effective than oral delivery" (Schnaubelt 96).
All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.
